Visit to Derbyshire Record Office

Yesterday I visited the Record Office at Matlock Derbyshire and looked through more rental books for the Sudbury estate - some from the 1600's! There were alot of references to the Bladon's and in the accounts which I also viewed.

There was another Edward who was a tailor to the Vernons, another Edward who was an under groom and a William who was a sadler to the family as well.

I also looked at an estate map from 1794 so i now know the extent of the estate. Somersall Herbert does not come under the estate so that clears a few things up for me.
